Outperform
Target sales solid, buy today's pullback, says Baird
Baird analyst Peter Benedict noted Target's earnings shortfall but he said sales remain strong with digital growth continuing to accelerate. The analyst did say gross margins were soft, reflecting higher digital fulfillment costs and other supply chain expenses. He remains encouraged by its continued top-line momentum and said he is inclined to buy today's pullback. Benedict maintained his Outperform rating and $100 price target on Target shares ahead of the company's earnings conference call.

Overweight
Target initiated with an Overweight at KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Edward Yruma initiated Target (TGT) with an Overweight rating and $110 price target. The analyst says Target's investments and improved execution are driving stronger comps, telling investors in a research note that he thinks this is sustainable in the current environment. Rather than viewing Target as a participant in the Amazon (AMZN) vs. Walmart (WMT) battle, Yruma thinks its unique mix of consumables and high-margin apparel/home decor leave it well-positioned to take share from at-risk retailers.

Buy
Target initiated with a Buy at Buckingham
Buckingham analyst Bob Summers initiated Target with a Buy rating and $102 price target. The analyst expects comparable store sales strength to continue at least for the next few quarters, seeing 4.5% in Q3 and Q4, conservatively. Summers also sees Target benefitting from strong holiday spending and the recent bankruptcy at Toys-R-Us.
